Hides West of Mukden.
Sinmintun is the northern termi-
nus of the Shaiihaikwau railway.
From Koupangt.e alxMtt seventy
miles si'U'hwest of Sinmintun a
branch hue connects with Vinkovv
which is about fifly-l'uie miles
southeast of KoupangUe.
A Russian concsjKjndciit of the
Associated Pi ess ill a dispatch from
Ta Teh.e I.iao aljtit a niontli ago
and it was Ik licved that the Sh-an-haikwan
railway was then under
the control of the Japanese with
the consent of China.
Ascaily as Maich 2y last the
Slianhaikw an concsj)iidciit of the
London Mai! as-icrted that the
Chinese had received oflicial au-
thori.ation to ttnii over the plant of
the railway to the Japanese.
The Japanese are in control of
the gulf of I.iao Tung and should
the .statement in the dispatch from
Mukden prove to be correct it
would indicate that they are land-
ing troops at Shaiihaikwau the
southern tciniiuus of the railway
and trail Ka ting them lo Siiiiniu-
tuu. The strategic imiMt tance of
the possession of the railway which
was sought Ly the Russians early
in the war is apparent.
Early Takes Gharg
Of the New Kaily Hotel
For several days J. C. ICarly has
been negotiating for the control of
the New Daily Hotel. The deal
was consummated ycstciday and
Mr. I;arly tojk charge today Mi.
Painell retiring as manager.
Some months ago when Mr.
Faily went to Oklahoma City he-
sold Mr. Parnell a half interest in
the hotel equipment and the latter
became manager. When Mr. Farly
sold his interest in the Threadgild
at Oklahoma City and returned .to
Chickasha he began to have long-
ings for his ' first love" the New
Farly and this deal is the result
lie has lived in Chickasha so long
and has K'cii so closely identified
w ith the low n that it is 'doubtful
whether he would feel at home in
any other place. Mr. Pearly has al-
ways made a success as a hotel
man. He made the New ICarlyone
of the best hotels in the territory
and it is safe to say that he will
keep it up to the high standard es-
tablished and maintained hitherto.
K. F. Parnell the retiring mana-g-
r is a splendid gent'eman and
there is 110 better hotel man any-
where lie made a most popular
manager and has a host of friends
here who wish him well wherever
he may go.
